How To Get Your Dream Honeymoon Under Budget
Author: Amanda Beswick Date Posted:30 June 2017
Your honeymoon is the cherry on top of what is expected to be one of the greatest days of your life. Just picture an extravagant or intimate vacation away with your newly married other half. However you want to spend it, your honeymoon away should be something that you will both love.
Of course, you should be doing all that you can to make this trip away a memorable one, but that doesn’t necessarily mean breaking the bank. This post hopes to offer a few pieces of sage wisdom to help you keep your perfect honeymoon under budget.
Include Your Honeymoon in Your Registry
It may seem a little bit cheeky, but you can ask for help with your honeymoon budget in your registry. There are a number of sites, such as honeyfund.com, that let you easily set up a way for guests to chip in to your honeymoon pot. This is a great option if you’d prefer a dream trip away instead of the standard knives and toasters.
Trim the fat
It is important to get to the heart of what you want out of your honeymoon with your partner. That way, you can easily downgrade certain aspects or trim away specific luxuries that are not so important to either of you. If first class is irrelevant to you, save a few bucks on travel expenses. If you want to splurge on fine dining together, make sure you factor in the price so that you can definitely do it.
If you are looking to do things on a serious budget, an all-inclusive honeymoon package might work perfectly for you. With this type of setup, you do not need to worry about food, drinks or activities because they are included in the initial price.
Oftentimes, popular honeymoon vacation destinations have peak seasons where tourists flood in. This causes a huge price hike for accommodation and travel prices, not to mention an influx of tourists. So if you are looking to save some cash then avoid the peak season - it will be less busy and less expensive.
If you are flexible about where you intend to go, you can use currency exchanges to make things a lot cheaper. There are many honeymoon destinations that have a relatively weak currency, so your money will go a lot further. Countries like Vietnam and the Philippines are absolutely gorgeous and will let you get more bang for your buck.
